JCU rides young talent to top half finish

September 18th, 2014



After a strong performance at the Gatorade Intercollegiate last week, the John Carroll University men’s golf  put together a strong performance at the Ohio Athletic Conference Fall Invitational.


A youth-laden JCU team, which fielded three freshmen, finished in fourth overall.


The OAC regular season championship is a combination of the fall invitational along with the two-round spring invitational.


Otterbein University currently holds the lead over the University of Mount Union by one stroke and holds an even further advantage over JCU at 12 strokes.


Freshman sensation Andrew Britton put together another spectacular outing, as he led the Blue Streaks by finishing second in the field. He shot a 75 on day two to earn a 149 overall in the invitational.


“This event made the players of our team prove themselves as golfers,” said Britton. “[This course] showed our team what we can improve on so that we can score better in the upcoming tournaments this fall and spring.”


Sophomore Mark Chrzanowski and senior Casey Vancil battled the whole tournament as Chrzanowski finished in 14th  after shooting a 155, while Vancil finished 22nd after shooting a 158.


The last two players for the Blue Streaks were freshmen Connor O’Grady and John Schnur. They finished in 32nd and 37th, respectively.
